The don of Middleboro’s Finance Committee wanted out of the numbers game and just when he thought he was out, they pulled him back in.
After 12 years crunching numbers Richard Pavadore thought it was time for new blood and didn’t seek reelection.
“I felt like it was a good time to get out but they pulled me back in,” Pavadore said.
Only 290 voters took to the Middleboro polls on Saturday to vote in an uncontested election. There was a scarcity of candidates and no one stepped up for one of the two Finance Committee’s seats.
Undaunted Pavadore’s supporters made an offer he couldn’t refuse and penciled in his name for his old seat.
Pavadore says he’s ready to roll up his sleeves and get back in the game just in time for the May 24th town meeting.
